Question for you: “How many buildings fell on 9/11?” Did you say two? Incorrect. THREE buildings fell. The twin towers, AND building 7 which was not hit by any plane and had minimal fire that relatively speaking was fairly easily controlled. Firefighters were stunned at even the twin towers falling, let alone bldg 7.
The buildings all fell at freefall speed into their own footprint. The only way a building falls at freefall speed into it’s own footprint is by controlled demolition. Even if you buy the story that the planes hitting the buildings were the catalyst for eventual collapse, you have no planes hitting bldg 7. It was brought down intentionally. If it was brought down intentionally, then it is easy to understand so were the twin towers.
Many employees working in the World Trade Center were interviewed and reported that weeks before the attacks, there were strange building shutdowns. They were told not to come in for a couple of days. No explanation was given, just that it was emergency maintenance, etc. Some employees didn’t get the message, came in to work only to be turned away for the same reason.
The second largest national newspaper in France, “Le Figaro” (also the oldest newspaper in existence in France, and has a ‘conservative’ editorial line) reported on Oct.31st 2001, that while already the world’s most wanted terrorist mastermind, Osama Bin Laden and his close assistant (thought to likely be world renowned terrorist Ayman el Al Zawahiri who would later become Bin Laden’s second in command) checked into the American Hospital in Dubai in July 2001.
Bin Laden was reported to have spent two weeks in our hospital in Dubai for treatment of kidney problems. While there, the respected French newspaper reported that he was visited by an American CIA agent. Le Figaro cited a professional partner at the hospital as their source. This could of course never have happened unless there was some kind of black ops, covert cooperation going on between some in our government and Osama Bin Laden/Al Qaeda.
Coincidentally and amazingly around this same time, shortly before the 9/11 attacks, the U.K.’s respected newspaper “The Guardian” reported, as also did the BBC, that they had received documents showing that the FBI was being told by the Bush Administration to “back off” of their investigations into Bin Laden and some of his family members that the FBI was trying to diligently investigate. Ironically two of the Bin Laden relatives in question were found to be residing in Falls Church, Virginia – right next to CIA headquarters.
In these documents the FBI is expressing frustration that their efforts to investigate many warnings of pending attacks likely from Bin Laden (who was already known to have been behind several other terrorist attacks such as the first World Trade Center attack in ’93, truck bombings in Saudi Arabia killing our troops, and the horrible U.S.S. Cole bombing) were being politically hamstrung. Again, as a reminder, those aforementioned acts of terror were known to be planned by Osama Bin Laden, yet he is reported by a leading, well respected French newspaper to have been accepted for treatment for two weeks at the American Hospital in Dubai 6 months prior to the attacks on 9/11, and visited by an American official believed to be a CIA agent.
Peter Jennings reported on ABC News that the F.A.A.(Federal Aviation Authority) received 52 warnings of pending Al Qaeda terrorist attacks using airliners as weapons within the SIX MONTHS prior to 9/11, and those warnings were ignored. Immediately after the attacks, you will recall President Bush, Vice Pres. Cheney and Sec. of State Condoleeza Rice among others insisting that they had NO prior knowledge or warning whatsoever, that airliners could be used as ‘weapons’ of terror. This despite at least 12 countries including Israel, Britain, France, Egypt, Russia and Saudi Arabia that are known to have issued strong warnings of such a strong possibility in the planning.
Widely reported across the major news media, especially on CNN, was the fact that the Pentagon sought to hide the testimony of members of a secret investigations task force known as “Able Danger”, which had identified Muhammed Atta (leader of attacks) and 3 other Al Qaeda members living in Brooklyn, New York more than a YEAR before the 9/11 attacks. Republican Senator Curt Weldon angrily responded as seen in a clip from CNN that this is an act by the Pentagon to keep the American people from knowing the truth behind the attacks on the World Trade Center.
Add to all this the well known fact that the head of Pakistan’s intelligence service “ISI”(which is the equivalent to our CIA) General Mahmoud Ahmed reqested an individual by the name of Umar Sheikh to wire $100,000.00 to Muhammed Atta, the lead hijacker just prior to the 9/11 attacks. No inquiry was ever made as to why the Pakistani general wired Muhammed Atta the 100k, and on the morning of the attacks he was having breakfast in Washington, D.C. with U.S. government officials.
Unbelievably, the 911 Commission decided that the wiring of those funds to Muhammed Atta was ‘of little practical relevance’ to the investigation. It was of critical relevance of course, so just that fact alone shows a major cover up effort by the group chosen and trusted as America’s ‘investigating authority’ for the worst act of terror in our history.
We don’t yet know what the truth is behind the events of 9/11. However, the more we delve into asking these critical questions, we can quickly see that the truth IS NOT the story we have been told. Many people still aren’t even aware of the fact of the Bush family’s connection and professional relationship with the Bin Laden Family.
Saleem Bin Laden, Osama Bin Laden’s older brother, has been widely reported for having done a lot of business with the Bush family when George Bush Sr. was a member of a company called The Carlyle Group. In 1998 and 2000, George Bush Sr. made trips to Saudi Arabia to do business with Saleem Bin Laden on behalf of the Carlyle Group.The Carlyle Group has very strong ties to defense contractors and the military industrial complex, the profits of whom are staggering and cannot be understated as a result of the subsequent ‘War on Terror’, and War in Iraq and Afghanistan after the attacks.
